Spanish speaking priests in Dallas?
« on: May 14, 2018, 11:27:20 PM »
Any canonical Orthodox priests in Dallas that speak and hear confessions in Spanish? My wife speaks Spanish and only speaks a little English.

She has family in Dallas and would like to talk to a priest in Dallas. Our priest only speaks English.  Unless you know of one in Oklahoma...but I haven't heard of any.

The OCA Cathedral in Dallas had monthly Spanish liturgies once upon a time. Not a guarantee that the priest speaks conversational Spanish, but it's worth a look-in. :)

It says they do a Divine Liturgy in Spanish once a month, so it would be at least a good starting point to email them and ask if someone can also hear confessions in Spanish.....

I called the rector listed on the website and talked to him. He can hear confessions in Spanish.

They have Spanish liturgies on the 4th Saturday of the month--with exceptions. This month is an exception.

Thank you.
